Stick 'em up Motherfucker
Lots has happened since last entry I think.
lilo: Sorry I made you bring up bad
memories. I obviously don't remember the 60's, and I'm
actually glad that I don't, cos I think I'd have hated them.
The reason the MTV crap annoyed me so, was (I think) because
had it been the other way around and be a revolution to get
rid of a person that the "west" liked, and install someone
else, then there wouldn't have been any meantion of it at
all, even if the people were still thinking for themselves,
and had decided that it was what they wanted. I also didn't
like that MTV had managed to make a revolution into an
advertising gimic: "MTV supported the people of Serbia". And
finally, MTV isn't really the bastion of "Free Thinking"
normally is it. "Oh, you liked this boyband? Well, you
also like this one, this one, and also this one."
So, In my evolution fun hacking, I've rewritten the services
code, because Michael said it sucked. Now it works much
nicer. Is much cleaner, uses more CORBA/Bonobo concepts that
I didn't know/forgot about the first time.
WVDial wise, things are kicking major butt. I can now query
a running connection to find out things like init strings,
what modem it's using, the phone number it dialed, the
password prompt, and loads more stuff. Actually, everything
in the configuration section I can read and change while
wvdial is running. Should be pretty good when I get it to
stop crashing when it tries to reconnect on disconnection.
The only problem is this only happens once every 2 hours for
me, so the change code/recompile/retry/wait to see if it
worked cycle is 2 hours, which kinda sucks.
Tekken 2 wise I am also kicking ass. Could have had Kerny
tonight, but he chickened out and played pool.
interesting comments on a certain bands 4th album,
plus a Kid A to Zzzzzz, which is quite funny.
Rumour has it that the most evil corporation ever are
using Low's version of The Little Drummer Boy for one of
their adverts. DIE DIE DIEDIEDIEDIEFORNICATE
And Yard Of Blonde Girls is still the sexiest song ever. All
I need now is a distortion pedal so I can play it like it
And thanks to davej I have a modern version
of EFM running, so "NAH!" to all you E Hacker people. I'm
rather impressed by it, although some of it's UI could be
improved. But hey it's good. Just wish it didn't have the
same problem that I remember in all other file managers that
don't have icon bars. . . how the heck do you move to an
upper directory? Sigh. Still, I like it, and it makes a
pretty mp3 directory listing :)
